. the ultimate outcome here is that nancy pelosi has one more vote for obama care and it's going to be a very close vote. so wasn't that counterproductive? >> well, he was not a mod a -- a moderate republican. more than likely to vote for obama-care. if we sat on the sidelines and did nothing, that vote would have been there regardless. so i think we changed the landscape and engaged in a debate and had a fight worth having, and i think it's going to have an impact on future elections in 2010. >> a lot of the democrats are saying this is typical of what is happening in the republican party, the civil war, grassroots, conservatives, who are running against republican moderates, even? districts where conservatives will have a hard time winning. is that the kind of fight we will see in 2010 among republicans. >> it's an example of the civil war in the republican party is a bit of a sore argue: there is only one real republican in the rays, and -- race, and that was doug hoffman. i don't think it's a great example to say there's this struggle within the republican party. i do think the lesson ab

that president obama has to make, it could define his presidency. >> well, the president's decision just got a lot tougher. in a leak memo to the white house, his ambassador urged against sending more troops. that advice runs counter to the wishes of the top general in afghanistan. >>the president's dilemma has just deepened, after 22 wars of war council the choice is still tough to spend a 1 billion dollars on each troops sent. and this could mean afghanistan could be sent deeper in terrorism. at the last meeting the president said that the meeting was not open-ended, it leaves the top two men in the country at lagger heads. general chrystal wants more troops but his time is running out. and h7!ekarl eikenberry sent a message not to send in unless they clean up their act. >> i think that the corruption issue goes to the heart whether the people of afghanistan feels the government is on their side, working for them. >> the president's administration is still divided, and mcchrystal and robert gates and hillary clinton, skeptical that this will work. the president has not come down on one sid

controversial prison at guantanamo bay, cuba, two months away, will not be met. president obama has confirmed the commitment that he made so publicly came to office will not be fulfilled in time. jonathan beall is at guantanamo bay. >> the reason for the delay is still filtering through. we do not know if the detainees have been informed, but the military commanders are aware. it does not come as a huge surprise because they know that president obama wanted to close it. they know there has been a huge obstacle in the way, the biggest one, where the put the detainees instead? there are still 200. where will they go, where will they be tried? these questions are still to be resolved. it is interesting to note there has been, we are told, an improvement in the mood, that there are less attacks on guards and that 70% of detainees are allowed to live communally for 20 hours per day. that is in part because they know that it is closure of the camp, they know the decision will be made about the future. we're still in the dark as to what will happen to the detainees. five will be transferred. it will

. >> biden's visit may rally the base riding on obama's coattails may not be enough in the 23rd congressional district. it is dominated by registered republicans who outnumber democrats and internally, the hoffman campaign says that their internal poll numbers are showing that the president's approval ratings here in this district are lower than across the national average. we're at a hoffman rally right now. wewe were at an an owens rally this morning. both candidates are rout looking for the last-minute votes. bret: the republican challenger is making life difficult for the democratic incumbent in new jersey. shannon bream is live tonight. good evening. aheading into tomorrow's election, the polls in new jersey could not be any tighter and with no easy way to predict a winner at this point, both the top candidates are working around the clock trying to sway minds an solidify their base going into elect day. >> you know it's an important election when your president comes here three times over four months. >> but half those visits translated to jon corzine. the latest quinnipiack poll shows
. president obama gave a preview to this decision this afternoon. >> after eight years, some of those years in which we did not have, i think, either the resources or the strategy to get the job done, it is my intention to finish the job. >> finish the job. make no mistake, this is just one more mess that president obama has to mop up after the bush administration. bush was the president who drained resources from afghanistan so we could go invade iraq on that perfect intelligence. bush never got bin laden dead or alive. bush never established a functional government over there in afghanistan. bush never eliminated the taliban. thanks a lot. so let's get out of magic wand and wave it now because here comes president obama and he's just expected to solve all of these problems in afghanistan. well, it isn't going to be easy. the country is split right down the middle when it comes to a troop increase. in the latest cnn poll, 50% support an increase. 49% are against it. so, no matter what president obama does, half the country's going to be bad mouthing him. president obama had one hell of an

against the taliban and the future of american soldiers on the front lines. well, president obama's name won't be on the ballot this election day, but as far as the white house is concerned, well, there could be much at stake for his administration as there is for any candidate craving victory this tuesday. the biggest indication of this, the president obama's blip across new jersey with corzine, the fight of his political life with chris christie. right now it's a statistical dead heat. despite the involvement of independent candidate chris daggett. huge one of three important races that could indicate the future political climate in the u.s. another new york's 23rd congressional race, in another surprising development, the g.o.p. candidate who suddenly suspended her campaign yesterday is now endorsing her former democratic rival over the conservative party candidate. more on that in just a moment. meanwhile, it's shaping up to be a g.o.p. victory in virginia's gubernatorial race. and mcdonnell leads in the polls. last november president obama became the first democratic presidential no
the mess. >> bill: if obama fails then it's going to be open season. obama will get the nomination, but hillary may challenge him on the democratic side. if things don't get better, if things are like this -- although the economic thing today was good. >> the economic thing was not good. you know why? because of cash for clunkers, that is what tipped it the other way. >> bill: with whatever it did, i agree with you. what do you think of mitt romney i know a little bit. he did a very good job in massachusetts, a democratic state, a republican. he did a good job in saving the olympics out in salt lake city. he looks to be a guy who knows what economics are. i don't think he is going to run up a trillion dollar deficit and he is a very articulate but his mormonism hurt him. you think that romney is a guy that would capture your support? >> he had it kind of only because my main issue was the economy. he may be the only guy that could help. however, i don't think -- romney is a great ceo. he'll broker deals and get it done. he'll never say anything that will throw it out of whack. howe
of sentist democrats. president obama is pushing for health care reform at a time of great draket skittishness. this week the republican leadership was playing on hose worries. >> this bill is the greatest threat to freedom that i have seen in the 19 years i've been here in washington. chris: some of the moderate democrats certainly follow elections and they remember august town meetings. here's what louisiana democrat mary landrieu heard in her town hall. >> in this bill, h.r.-3200 and others similar tomato, it takes away our freedom. this is not about health care. this is about growing -- [applause] >> there is an appropriate time for appropriate government rules and regulations. audience: boo! chris: and no doubt democrat klara mccaskill, a sentist from move hasn't forgotten about the same kind of defiance at her hometown in sthrulls. -- st. louis. >> you don't trust snow chris: what's worrying the moderates right now is the loss of the independent voter. independents were the backbone of obama's sweep last year. in the recent nbc news poll, the overall support for obama was 52
